Destructoid has posted their preview of Fallout 3. Highlights:

At least they sort of understand the Fallout community :p

Fans of the series are smart and they're rabid -- subsequent titles using the Fallout license that were released when the original team split (Fallout Tactics and Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel) were torn to shreds.

On the setting and weird weapons that suck things up and shoot them:

[Fallout 3 is] set in a post-war Washington, D.C., now known as the Capital Wasteland, complete with bombed-out national monuments. And secondly: to those who are worried about the game being "Oblivion with guns," here's the deal: not so much, actually ... your Internet trolling license has been revoked. (Yes, there are a fair amount of guns in the game, including an awesome gun that can be used to suck up items in the environment and fire them at enemies.)

On cannibalism:
